Captain of the Wastelands by ChristopherStevens Captain of the Wastelands by ChristopherStevens
I had this idea of a post apocalyptic Captain America and needed to paint him. I even thought about doing a series of these with different super heroes in the wasteland theme. Two of my favorite subjects mixed. I was trying some desaturation things on this one and playing with warm and cool (my favorite color contrast). This was a fun one.

I thought for a moment in the thumbnail that he was showing off his mid-drift. Abs of Freedom indeed.

Cool. Looks like you have a spice of Frazetta in there with that pyramid shape. At least that is what struck me right off the bat.

Hi Christopher, big fan, your marker renderings, out of this worls man...i love this piece, even though i would have inverted the tonal mood, cold tones for cap ( something about the red uniform just takes me away from the character) and warmer for the ambiance, for some reason i imagine the wastelands as a warmish place, any way, i love your concept idea and i wanted to ask you if you would mind if i take it and produce some versiones of my own????, of course i would share all of them with you , i just love the idea!!!

Awesome, very cool. Really like the postural and slight exaggerations in proportion, creates a very unique style..

Now the picky part if me has one thing to say. The American Flag should go the other direction. The stars always start from the frontal plane of the individual. It's a tradition that goes all the way back to Calvary Days..

Hmm..good to know. I didn't think of it while I was working. Originally, it was just a patch of leather or something sewn onto his shoulder and I later changed it to a flag. Maybe that's why I didn't think to research it first. Thanks for the kind words.

This kind of makes me think of the old "where are non-mutant heroes in the X-Men anti-mutant sentinel supremacy bad future". I can imagine Captain running around, securing supplies for civilians and fighting bandits in the wasteland, kind of like a more empathic Kenshiro.

The main character of Fist of the North Star. He wanders the wasteland looking for his rival and kidnapped girlfriend and kills evil people and helps good ones in his way. You may know him as the "you are already dead" or the "ATATATATA" guy.

He looks like that :iconkenshiroplz:

The way you did the mix of warm and cool colors really works the mood and atmostphere. The body language all points to the Six piece. From the curve of the hip to the direction of the scarf, I kinda wish the gun was going off just to activate the space a lil more. But it looks great, nice work.

Thanks. Yeah, it seems to work out that way when you can desaturate the colors enough. I tend to go brighter on my colors, but when I'm focusing on not doing that, I can get to work heh.

This is a cool concept. Almost as if superheroes survived and lived in the Fallout universe, he'd be one of those random characters you happen to come across.I am a dummy!

Very cool idea. Love how you made everything so torn. But it would be cool if Caps shield still remained the only thing shiny and indestructible. Hope you do more!
